Despicable Me

Despicable Me is a computer animated family comedy. While it does not come from Pixar , it demonstrates a similar polish and similarly lovable characters.

Steve Carell, Jason Segel, and Russel Brand provide voices that do not sound much like their regular voices. But Agnes, voiced by Elsie Fisher, and the minions steal the show. I now have an “It’s so FLUFFY!” ringtone and see a big market for minion action figures. The animators included thinly-veiled copies of Bill Gates and the Pointy-Haired Boss. The story is quite funny, often subtly so, and has a remarkable amount of heart.

I recommend Despicable Me for fans of films like Up who are looking for a family film.
